Extending battery life

Laptops are expensive and their accessories can be just as much of a drain on your pocket, which is why you need to learn all the tricks of the trade in order to minimize your expenses. When you come to us for a replacement laptop battery, you can rest assured that you are not getting second rate products.

We only supply our customers with top quality laptop batteries. However, even the best of the best can run out of juice sooner or later. You can learn to extend the life of any laptop battery with a few simple tricks. Here’s how it works.

Giving life, not taking it

Laptop batteries are not meant to stand around unused. If you are going to be away from your laptop for an extended period of time, don’t leave the battery in. Take it out and store in a dry, cool and safe place.

Now, some people think that when they use their laptop with the AC adapter it will save their battery power from running down and thus make it last longer than constantly recharging it. It is good for the battery to get used and not just stagnate.

Every now and then, unplug your AC adapter and let it run almost all the way down. Take good care of your laptop battery, avoid dropping it on had surfaces or allowing it to be exposed to extreme heat or moisture. Lastly, clean your laptop battery contacts. Any dust or residue that collects on them can put undue strain on your laptop battery.
